Stayed at the Dune last weekend. True to their title "ECO", we found every aspect of the resort from the structure materials, decorations, setting, etc true to that claim. The pool was fantastic with fabulous views around and the private beach is the highlight of this resort. Every type of room was unique in its structure and setting, with privacy... More

We had visited Dune Eco Village in May 2009. This is a nice property on the sea shore. The best thing about his property is the various stay options. Each cottage is designed differently. We opted for the one with a small garden and the open to sky bath. The room was very compact and closest to the sea. During... More

Have been to Dune multiple times but this time the service level exceeded expectation. The AC suddenly stopped working around 8 PM in the night and the technicians immediately got on to it and rectified with in an... More

Other than the fact that the resort is located by the beach, there is nothing good about this place. Service is abysmally dismal. Challenges we had were: 1. No value for money. We paid more than 8000 INR per night to get a room smaller than toilet.(wood house first floor in duplex set up) 2. Didnt have power at all... More

The Dune never fails to delight you. We live in Chennai and try to get there every now and then for a weekend of bliss and this time was no different. Brilliant rooms / great service are its hallmarks and the newly added rooms are just getting better ! Keep up the great work

Great place to get away and get lost, we stayed at the bamboo room and it was a lovely experience, the staff are very very helpful, we experienced some problems with some bamboo termites on the second night and we were immediately given a different room. Private beach is great, and the restaurant bu pool is very relaxing although the... More

The Dune is a very luxury eco-ressort. The service is excellent and the food too. All rooms and suites are individually designed and very beautiful. (We had the chance to see some of them). We can recommend the pool house (private pool!!!) and the honeymoon suite in a 50meter high tower. The resort has also a private beach area. The... More

Very courteous and helpful staffs and literally an Eco friendly place to unwind and relax over the weekend... minimum of 3 days of stay would be ideal if you really want to explore and enjoy all the offerings what they have to offer...

Sample this - arrived at the resort 3pm ...all tired in pondy's sultry heat ; forget about a welcome drink nobody offered us a glass of water!! And just so that you know... More

Never imagined such a huge place Eco-friendly near Pondicherry (Pondy) and hardly 2 hours escape from Chennai (a.k.a Madras). They provide different types of rooms (Check their web-site). We took Baywatch room, which was facing the sea. Could not see sun-rise as it was cloudy for the entire duration we stayed. Room we stayed had bamboo floors, thatched roof. It... More
